Women Leading Women is an annual event that celebrates and showcases our fearless female alumnae and other enterprising women in business from the classroom to the C-suite. The event, centered around a one-on-one discussion, inspires and challenges attendees to realize and reach their full potential.
This year's honoree is Marguerita (Rita) Cheng, a 1993 Smith School alumna and founder and CEO of Blue Ocean Global Wealth in Rockville, Md. Find out how this enterprising executive made the successful transition from the sales floor at Nordstrom to founding her own company.
